    I'm in the office, which is on the opposite end of the house from the living room. DH is in the living room, in his recliner, with his feet up. He's watching some program on the military channel.

    Just now Jax, our older GSD, started heaving like he was about to throw up - right in front of DH. DH never heard it. I heard it from the opposite end of the house and managed to get Jax out the back door just in time. Truth is, I would have heard it if I had been sound to sleep - in the next county!

    How can a man be so observant when he's working, yet so tuned out when he's watching TV?!? [​IMG]

    Men are like hatchets. Women are like Swiss army knives.

    Sheesh- you have to even ASK? Is this simply not how a man is made? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    BTW, I hope JAX is alright!

    I've heard that men have tunnel vision - that they really truly don't "take in" what's around them if they are concentrating on something. Just the way they are wired.

    Which makes them kind of cruddy babysitters, or so I've heard. Let's see, ball game on... junior setting the garage on fire... yup, ball game it is.

    My question is how can a boy AND a man walk over the puke 10 times without "seeing" it or stepping in it? Hmmm........................... Could it be because if you "see" it you are supposed to clean it up [​IMG] I am sure Mom will use this hallway some time today [​IMG]

    I'm proud to say it is a gift given to us men. Without the selective hearing I'm not sure many men could stay married to some women. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My son is the one who hears everything like this, not me, not his wife, not his kids. He used to be the one who heard the baby crying at night first. Actually, his father did, too -- one of the few things he was good for. I figure it's a matter of what he's tuned to.

    I hate it when you think you're starting a conversation then about 30 seconds later you get a big "huh?"
